After her show was cancelled earlier this year due to COVID-19, Adelaide's Michaela Burger will perform her award-winning cabaret show A Migrant's Son in Ceduna next year, but the show needs a community choir.

A Migrant's Son, which premiered at the 2018 Adelaide Cabaret Festival, explores true stories of Greek migration to Australia in the 1930s.

The rescheduled show will take place at Thevenard's Greek Community Club on March 24, 2021 at 7.30pm.

Ms Burger is calling on the local community to bring out their singing voices as she searches for a choir to add an extra element to her cabaret.

"It's a wonderful way to bring the community into the performance and to hear their beautiful voices together just lifts the experience," she said.

During the 2019 tour, 59 choir members from regional choirs joined Ms Burger across four performances, with overwhelmingly positive feedback about the experience.

Choir rehearsals will take place in the weeks leading up to the performance, to be coordinated by a local choir leader.

Everybody who wants to sing, or has a background in singing, is encouraged to register their interest to Country Arts SA's creative communities programmer Tammy Hall at tammy.hall@countryarts.org.au or on 8444 0411.
